Wow - it really does feel like comic cons are fully back with a vengeance, with MCM Comic Con London kicking off next weekend at the ExCel Centre, guests and announcements rolling out for Wales Comic Con: Telford Takeover and Thought Bubble, and, this weekend, The Lakes International Comic Art Festival setting out its stalls all around Kendal in the Lake District.
But, while the events are back, does that mean that the vibe is back, also? Lakes has had the hardest hurdles to tackle: keeping its remit of supporting indie and legacy creatives while having the smallest representation of mainstream comics to possibly bring in the all-essential passing trade.
We find out from two attendees - one reporting on, and one exhibiting at , the festival - what it's really been like with boots on the ground at this usually vibrant and vital festival. Has the energy been there as the long nights kick in?
We're joined by Tripwire Magazine's Joel Meadows and THAT TEXAS BLOOD's Christopher Condon to talk Lakes, as well as reviewing DC FanDome, and much more,
